1. This page is by no means complete but will be worked on and added to from time to time. It mainly follows the Greek Myths but some Roman name equivalents have been added.
2. Visitors interested in Greek Mythology are recommended to 'surf the Web' for there are many sites that have much to offer on this subject (including those identified under 'Main sources' below). However, don't be surprised to see different sites report different genealogies for the Gods - after all, they were (to the best of our knowledge) entirely mythical!
[NB. The connections of these Gods to the rest of the database come through Dardanus who is shown at the top of 'Adam4'. That page provides connections to 'Adam5' and 'Saxons1'. That page also, as well as linking him to these pages on the Gods (through his descent from Zeus), provides an alternative ancestry that shows him descended from Adam & Eve.]
